Securely delivering connected healthcare.

Connecting securely to The Health and Social Care Network (HSCN) gives healthcare workers more time, control, and clarity to help those in need. Delays can cost lives and livelihoods, so we work with organisations to ensure all HSCN connection services are intelligent for the services they want to deliver.

HSCN connection, made simple

How to connect to the HSCN.

We’ll help connect you to the HSCN, without the headaches. In order for Cloud Gateway to connect you, you’ll need to sign up to the terms of the HSCN Connection Agreement.

Sign the HSCN Connection agreement

If you think you’ve signed the HSCN Connection Agreement (which replaced the NHS N3 network in 2018), search either using your organisation name or ODS code. If you don't know it, find it here.

Check here

Request an invitation if you haven’t received anything

If you haven't yet received an invitation to complete your Connection Agreement, contact to request access to their online portal.

Submit your agreement to NHS Digital

Once you have access to the NHS Digital online portal, sign your Connection Agreement and submit it to NHS Digital.

We’ll double check your
HSCN Agreement

As a trusted HSCN network provider, Cloud Gateway will validate that you've signed up to the terms of the HSCN Connection Agreement before connecting your environments to HSCN.

We were ready to launch – however, other potential HSCN connectivity solutions were proving to be a huge blocker. And then within a matter of days, or even hours, we had it - thanks to the Cloud Gateway team. We were very impressed by the speed, quality and customer service we received.
